I wonder how all those Denialista’s will cope if 2010 is warmer than 1998? Are they going to jump up and down and yell, “Look, bright shiny thing over there…” for about 5 years, and then start a similar myth… “But it’s been cooling since 2010…”
You heard it here first folks. It’s been cooling since 2010.
In addition to the confirmation that this decade has been the warmest ever, the WMO predicted that 2009 will most likely be amongst the top ten warmest years in the history of a 160 year record. At a news conference at the COP15 talks this week, Michel Jarraud, the secretary general of the WMO said: The period from 2000 through 2009 has been “warmer than the 1990s, which were warmer than the 1980s, and so on.” He added that although the data is not yet complete for 2009, there is a strong indication that it will be the fifth warmest year on record to date.
